I now know what the head of the right hon. Gentleman's own policy commission on the environment meant when he said of the Leader of the Opposition:

"Whether he's riding a bike, or visiting glaciers, it's all part of projecting a message...A lot of people will say this is just opportunism. They may be right."

When it comes to the issue of supporting action on the environment, we now find that the right hon. Gentleman runs away at every point. When it comes to helping the poor, he says that he wants to help the poor and then does not support our tax cut. When it comes to helping the low paid, he does not support the minimum wage. When it comes to helping the environment, he runs away.
